I wouldn't mind that.  The only I see wrong with the suggestion is
that then the progress slows down for one day a week.  I used to use
Debian Unstable and I hated it when some thing would break because I
had to wait a full day before I could get it fixed.  I understand that
is part of the development cycle, but I loved waiting an hour and see
it get fixed with ubuntu.  It really helped me to feel that work was
getting done.

Thanks for such a great distro.
